Renowned for his poignant songwriting and an electrifying stage presence,Chance Peña unveiled his latest single, I am not who I was, in September. The track swiftly struck a chord with fans, amassing over 13 million global streams. The release marked yet another milestone in what has already been a groundbreaking year for the artist. In July, he launched his Lovers to Strangers EP, which included the fan-favorite single In My Room. The song has garnered an impressive 200 million streams across Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube, along with a staggering 5 billion views on TikTok, inspiring over 2 million video creations and counting. In June he toured North America (also as the support for Kusher) that included a stop at Bonnaroo Music Festival.
At only 23, Chance Peña might be one of the youngest music industry veterans you’ll ever meet – an old-soul folk singer and producer who’s been gigging and writing songs for the better part of a decade. Born and raised in Tyler, Texas, and now based in Los Angeles, Chance cut his teeth as a songwriter after competing on The Voice aged 15, and since then has been honing a sound that is both unrestrained and brimming with emotional depth, all underscored by an unwavering commitment to authenticity. That truth has led him to some impossibly huge places – including a publishing deal at an incredibly young age, and a cowrite with John Legend, Conversations In The Dark, that netted him a gold record. With the release of Lovers to Strangers – an entirely self-produced body of work – Chance emerged as a deft chronicler of the trials and tribulations of romantic relationships and life as a twenty-something. “I hope that these songs help somebody,” Chance notes, “that these lessons learned can help them deal with the things in their own lives.”
